Question about post length
« on: August 05, 2018, 12:37:01 PM »
whenever  i create a new topic the post itself gets reduced for example:i post a 1000 char long post

and what appears only is a few parts of it

i checked the maximum post length settings and everything , can't find the source of the problem

First, upgrade to 2.0, then convert to UTF-8.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

No good deed goes unpunished / No act of charity goes unresented.

While that's true, there are additional circumstances not covered in that wiki article that 2.0 series does address but that for various reasons, 1.1 cannot.

maybe we need to edit that article to include the first step is to upgrade to SMF 2.0 then apply the steps it suggests if the user is not already on SMF 2.0.
